November 26th, 2016 was a great day for AMSA-UI as we celebrate the organization’s 30th birthday. The party took place on the Da Vinci Penthouse Multifunction Hall in Sudirman from 17.00 until 21.00. To celebrate the organization’s pretty old age birthday, this year’s birthday theme is Thanksgiving. Everyone came to the party suited and dressed ready to get sedated by the awesomeness of the party AMSA-UI prepared. Before the party even started, a festive atmosphere could already felt because so many people came, not only from AMSA-UI, but from AMSA from around Jakarta.
The event began with speeches from the Project Officer, AMSA-UI Representatives, and the Student President of the Faculty of Medicine of University of Indonesia. After that we sang the National Anthem and The Asian Medical Students Association Anthem.
Everyone was already really hype for the party right after we all sang the National Anthem. That was why everybody loved the next event, which is eating dinner. During dinner time people not only eat, but they all socialize with people they never met before. Now that everyone knows everybody, it was time to play games. The first game was battle of the sexes. It was a game with an objective to move cards to the next person using nothing but your mouth. Bunch of funny things happened especially in the men’s team. Unfortunately, the women’s team won easily. Next, was battle of the departments of AMSA-UI. It was a game to guess anything the messenger give without saying a single thing. It was a total chaos because every department played to win. Although every department gave everything they got, the winner was AMSEP Department.
After everyone was tired after playing two great games then came the sharing session from former representatives and executive boards. So many things can be learned from their experiences. Finally, the party ended with a flash mob and a mannequin challenge participated by everyone who came to the party. Although, it was great, everything must end. So, we took one last photograph and said goodbye and thank you to everyone.
Having the privilege as being the Project Officer of AMSA-UI 30th Birthday Party was such an honor for me. Everyone helped me to make this event a success. I learned a lot of things and gain more than I could ever ask for. Once again, I want to thank everyone for this party and congratulate them for making one of the coolest birthday parties ever! Yeah, we did it guys!
